Translations of this item:

A few readers have questioned the authenticity of some of Gatestone's articles, such as the "Open Letter to the French President" posted this morning. Unfortunately, in many parts of the world, writers sometimes need to remain anonymous to protect their safety. If we could not assure them of privacy, there would be no letters or articles from those places at all — from where they are most needed. So we prefer to publish them rather than not. Critics will always oppose an article even when the author's name is on it. We also wonder if people who focus on the identity of a writer, rather than on the content, are trying to shift attention away from the content, no matter how accurate or well-sourced it might be.
